TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — One person was killed in a single-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 25 near Gap Creek Road on Friday morning.

According to Greenville County coroner B. Parks Evans, 23-year-old Luis Francisco Bucato, Jr., from Gatlinburg, Tenn., was a passenger in a southbound vehicle when the driver lost control and went off the right side of the roadway.

Bucato was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck, Evans said.
